Screening Series

In a new partnership, New York Women in Film & Television (NYWIFT) and BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) are thrilled to present a collection of groundbreaking contemporary films that delve into science and technology in the modern world. These urgent documentaries and empowering fictions take us from the depths of outer space to the on-the-ground action of a Hasidic women-run ambulance corps and beyond.

Films include To the End (Rachel Lears), Space: The Longest Goodbye (Ido Mizrahy), My Love Affair with Marriage (Signe Baumane), Every Body (Julie Cohen), 93Queen (Paula Eiselt), Chilly & Milly (William D. Caballero), and Over-Flow (Elizabeth Ramjit). 

Join us Tuesdays at 7 PM at BAM for six weeks of free STEM-focused screenings, followed by Q&A’s with the filmmakers.

You Are Now Able to Join the Women in the Arts & Media Coalition! 

With our new Individual Memberships, you no longer need to be a member through your organizational affiliation. For artists and media professionals who are not currently affiliated with one of our member organizations, this is a way to join our community. For artists and media professionals who are affiliated with one of our full member organizations, this is a way to receive additional perks and support the Coalition. 

As an individual member, you will be able to:

  • Attend all events, in person and virtual (with coalition discount if paid event);
  • Receive all newsletters, including the NEW WAMCollaboration Newsletter;
  • Access to our NEW WAMCollaboration Google Group (connecting artists for collaborative opportunities);
  • Be included in our NEW online Directory of Members and their disciplines, with links to social media (with or without contact information as preferred);
  • Serve on committees;
  • Receive perks and discounts;

Student Memberships

With our new Individual Student Memberships, you can join the Women in the Arts and Media Coalition for ONLY $10 PER YEAR. To be eligible for a student membership, one must be actively studying their discipline, and not yet a practicing professional. You do not need to be matriculated in a graduate, undergraduate, or professional full-time program.

Student members will have their own directory and their own Google Group. There is also a separate Student Collaboration Award to which student members can submit. 



The $1,000 Collaboration Award and additional honorable mentions are designed to encourage professional women in the arts and media from different specializations to work collaboratively on the creation of a new artistic work. The aim of the award is to encourage women to work collaboratively with women of other disciplines. Eligible teams may submit any form of creative collaboration on a new work that had its first public performance within the last two years. A public performance can include, but is not limited to a staged reading, gallery show, screenings, concert series, etc. Due to the NEW Individual Memberships, you will no longer need to be a member of a member organization to be eligible for submission. You can now apply by joining the Coalition as an Individual Member. Members of our full member organizations will need to register.

The WAMCollaboration Google Group & Newsletter! The Women in the Arts and Media Coalition is creating a WAMCollaboration Google Group that will allow artists to network and seek out collaborators for their projects. Start finding collaborators now; the submission process will begin soon.
